Step Into 21st Century Jobs With Free Training And Career Readiness Classes

SmartAsset has conducted a study that shows which high paying jobs will have the most opportunity over the next decade, and here’s the good news: Calbright offers free training for several of these roles specifically, or in the sector more broadly. 

Among the jobs SmartAsset predicts to have the most growth and the best salaries are:

Information Security Analysts – the average salary is over $100,000 (though starting salaries are likely to be ower), the field is expected to grow by more than 30%, and Calbright offers classes that prepare students to earn the CompTIA Security+ certification.

Computer and Information Systems Managers – the average salary is over $100,000 (though starting salaries are likely to be lower), the field is expected to grow by over 15%, and Calbright has a free online certificate program that prepares students for the CompTIA A+ credential.

Nurse Practitioners – the average salary is over $100,000 (though starting salaries are likely to be lower), and the field is expected to grow by over 40%. While Calbright doesn’t offer a certificate program to become a nurse practitioner, we do offer continuing education programs for nurses, helping nurses to take their careers to the next level.

This is all in addition to our program in CRM Platform Administration, which is another field that, according to experts, is expected to have many job openings for positions with good salaries.
